I have not made a vid on this as there are a great many tricks and far better people to explain it. Youtube is your friend here.
OLL and PLL are normally used as terms to describe Orienting and Permuting the last layer. That is correctly twisting then positioning the pieces. There are a great many vids on these.
There are normally 2 main methods of OLL / PLL. The easier method is 2 look OLL, PLL. I have made vids in how to do this.
Yes I make a mistake in one vid, but the algorithm is correct in the notes.
There is a more complex method that is much faster with full OLL / PLL algs. I couldn't be bothered to learn 100+ algs though.
The world champions tend fast methods like "full fridrich" and "petrus". Youtube is again your friend. I get by on the above methods, rather than the really fast ones. I average about 40 seconds and have a personal best of about 33.5.
