    It totally depends on the keyword phrase that you are modifying with "top" or "best" and the context in which you're using it.

    I wouldn't ever say "best ten hits" or "best 10 hits"... It's "top 10 hits!" I would never search for "top mortgage rates"... I would search for "best mortgage rates".

    There is no rule of thumb. You have to evaluate it with the context in which you're using it as a search modifier.

    It really depends on the specific keyword, but here's the overall data from Google Insights for Search.
