Variety is the spice of life, and in Reseda, CA, you can live it through and through. With close proximity to Sherman Oaks and Sun Valley, Reseda is a diverse neighborhood, and you can find its diversity everywhere you look. Even though more than 50% of the population is Hispanic, there is an important component of other races and ethnicities such as Asian and Non-Hispanic white.
Reseda Boulevard, an iconic street, is a great example of San Fernando Valley’s eclecticism. This is one place you need to go if you want to keep your colleagues happy (our Los Angeles SEO team regularly hangs out here on Friday evenings).
If you decided to cruise along this Boulevard, you would find many a different store and restaurant representing so many different cultures, you would think you are at a UN convention and not a street in California.
Some of these include Armenian, Korean, Persian, and of course, Hispanic. This is true for both the groceries you will find at the supermarkets and the choices of restaurants for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Do you feel like having some Thai food? You can choose one of the restaurants on the boulevard such as the Jaopaya or Saya Non Thai. In the mood for Lebanese? Stop at Pita Pocket for their delicious lemon chicken laffa. Craving some Salvadorian food?
No problem at all, go to Mis Raices Restaurant. These are just a few examples of what I was telling you about, outspoken diversity. In this vibrant northern LA neighborhood, it is expressed in its restaurants, in its stores, and even on the walls on the streets.
If you happen to visit Reseda, remember to check out the art on the walls, you will be amazed by the local talent. There is an annual event called The Reseda Rising Artwalk & Night Market which is held to promote the work of San Fernando Valley’s artists and features many activities such as an art market, interactive installations, workshops, and other events where many artisans and artists show and sell their creations. This is a great place to visit if you’re looking for creative inspiration, just like what our LA web design team does.

Over The SEO Ninjas has done outstanding things for our business growth and our online presence. Prior to working with Over The Top, we attempted to run our own PPC campaigns with very low results (wasting a lot of money). After bringing in Over The Top, who understands our needs and is very attentive, the phone is ringing off the hook. Thank you for helping us triple our profits! We give them the highest regard for their skill set and highly recommend them for any company’s website building and online presence.
After hiring a few SEO firms over the years, with little to no results, I decided to give one more crack at it. I learned about Over The Top SEO while researching the best link building companies on google, and found myself stumbling across their website. I was introduced to the founder, Guy Sheetrit, by one of his employees, and could immediately tell my experience would be different. Guy seems to have a knowledge of SEO that far surpasses that of 99% of the SEO firms I’ve dealt with in the past, and the results speak for itself. I plan on using his services in the months to come.
Over The Top SEO chose a great name, because their results really are over the top. I worked out an estimated ROI I’d get from working with them, and the results have FAR exceeded what I thought I’d be getting. First page results all over the place, ranking for wayyyyy more phrases than I was even expecting, and the traffic has turned into a game changing amount of new business for me and my company. Thank you guys sincerely!
I was the one to locate Over the top SEO for my University and I am happy I did it. These guys are no joke, they know what they are doing from A to Z. no games, no time wasting. purely professional.
We started working with Over The Top SEO after looking for serious SEO experts, we found them in the top positions for most of the competitive words we looked up and after much consideration we decided to go with them, We can’t disclose too much but I can say that it is a beautiful relationship and we are most grateful for the technical knowledge these guys have. Overall just 10/10.
We are a fairly big company in the auto parts industry and Over The Top SEO helped us grow A LOT in the past 2 years. we would gladly recommend them anytime, anywhere.
This company is probably the best we have encountered as of yet, we have been suffering from poor “SEO” experts by 5 companies that are known out there and yet all fail to deliver and over promise the sky. With over the top we literally had 100% interaction in our campaign, we were an active part of the process and still are always in the loop. We finally saw results after several short months with a continuing growth in sales. We are so happy to have met Guy and his team of professionals, and we are not going anywhere.
We were very surprised by the way Guy, Greg, Paul and the team at Over the top SEO works, its the first time someone opens our eyes to what is happening with our campaigns and involves us deeply into the process, which now I understand the importance of why they do it they way they do, we are with OTT for more than 9 months now and we are very happy with them, they are the only company that provided us with raw results constantly.
It sounds that I am very buyest, but hee, what these guys do works. On a daily basis you see your positions improve, traffic get better and your store grow. We are happy bumping into Over The Top SEO, even though we are a dutch company they managed to get Gereedschappelijk the ranking we were looking for. And still improving…!
Really Enjoyed my experience and will continue working with Over The Top SEO in the future. Much love.
Speaking of local talent…the area is a “local talent” all in itself. This not so glamorous part of Los Angeles has been featured in many Hollywood films. Do you remember the poster from E.T. the Extraterrestrial? The one where the bike is flying? The woods scenes from that movie were shot right here in this very area. Porter Ridge Park is the name. Of course, the area has changed a lot since the film that launched Drew Barrymore to stardom was released. But the park is still there and a great place to spend the day. Keeping the movie talk, Reseda was also featured in The Karate Kid. Do you remember those apartments where Mrs. LaRusso and Daniel live? Yeap, that’s Reseda! And these are just two examples.
So this is Reseda today. But, how was this unique neighborhood in the beginning? How did it come to be what it is today?
This area of north-west LA was part of the San Fernando Mission. Then in 1912 –after a bunch of real estate whatchamacallits- the town called Marian was founded. It didn’t even get to be a teenage town before it was re-named Reseda. The name Reseda makes reference to Reseda odorata or mignonette, which was very abundant in many gardens way back when.
Reseda used to be an agricultural community, with lettuce, orange and walnut plantation. This area was actually the U.S.’s largest lettuce producer before WWII. After the war, the economy shifted and it slowly turned into the productive community that it is today.
Reseda’s economic activity is as varied as its more than 70 thousand residents. Unsurprisingly, health care is the main industry, employing more than 12% of the population, followed by retail (11%) and other services (10%).
Interesting facts about Reseda:
The neighborhood population density is higher than in LA.
The 1994 earthquake, widely known as the Northridge Earthquake, actually had its epicenter in Reseda. It was right under Reseda Blvd between Ingomar and Arminta Streets.
This colorful part of LA is often times underrated, but it has a lot to offer to visitors and residents who approach life with an open mind and can see beauty beyond the more glamorous areas in the City of Angels.
We have inspired and motivated business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals around the world for the past few years, and we’ve helped nearly 2,000 clients grow their businesses, online and offline. However, we realized that we couldn’t help everyone. and the truth is not everyone is our match made in heaven. Therefore, we only accept new clients after an extensive screening process that helps us determine whether we will be a good fit for each other.
Who knows? OTT might be the best thing that ever happened to you.
