  • Unfortunately you can't control the query suggestions order using the out-of-the-box SharePoint web parts. You have to create a custom web part and then do one of the following:

      • Use the standard SharePoint query suggestions web service but manipulate the order in which they are displayed on the client-side using javascript
      • Develop a custom web service that returns query suggestions in the desired order

    You can find some great information on this topic in the Working with Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint book (chapter 9).
