What is the link between bond order and bond strength?

From what I remember, higher bond order means a shorter, stronger bond.

The greater the bond order is, the greater the bond strength is.
A BO of 1 denotes a single bond
A BO of 2 denotes a double bond
A BO of 3 denotes a double bond

As the bond order increases, so does the strength of the bond.

A bond order of 0 means that the molecule is unstable and does not exist.
