Which stitch is used for a strong permanent seam?

How do you make strong seams?
SUPER SEAM #1: Fold and stitch down
First, to make the seam itself stronger, I use a “5 stitches forward, 2 stitches back” approach, meaning I stitch forward a spell, then back a couple stitches, forward a bunch, back a couple, and so on. This insures that the stitches themselves won’t pull out with wear.

What is a bullion stitch?
