  • Hi

    Yes, visual best bets, and all the other functionality connected to keywords (synonyms, best bets, ...) only work in the site collection where it is created. Therefore, it's often best to direct users to a common search center. If you want to maintain separate search centers in different site collection, you could for example sync them automatically using these Powershell scripts

    Import FAST Keywords and User Contexts to Sharepoint 2010 from CSV

    Export FAST Keywords and User Contexts from SharePoint 2010 to CSV

    I hope this helps.
