Little Haiti is a picturesque neighborhood located in North Miami. As its name states it, the majority of residents in this area are from the namesake country or descend from Haitian origin. The neighborhood is a small corner of the Caribbean island right in the heart of Florida with close proximity to Allapattahand Coconut Grove.
The Haitian community in the Miami-Dade County is the largest in the United States. There are more than 300,000 residents, representing 71% of Florida’s Haitian population. We’ve also seen that a lot of our Miami SEO clients of Haiti origin live here.
Little Haiti wasn’t always called that. The area was known as Lemon City for more than a century, and it was one of the pioneering towns in Miami-Dade County.
Its designation as Little Haiti was probably one of the most controversial in the history of the Magic City. The name was only legally designated in 2016. Even against the wishes of many landowners who did not agree with the name change, claiming that the area’s historical roots included part of Miami’s most remarkable legacy.
And they kind of had a point. Check out these historical facts about Lemon City
Despite the historical importance, Lemon City never had defined boundaries because it was never incorporated.
Nowadays the neighborhood is predominantly Haitian, more than 70% of the residents are black, 20% are Hispanics, and only 5% are white. Over 60% of the residents are from Haitian origin, as such, area oozes Haitian culture. You can experience it in everything, from the joyful people walking the streets to the retail stores to the restaurants and bistros to the art on the walls.
Walking around Little Haiti, you will find colorful murals, which make each of the buildings unique and charming. Coincidentally Little Haiti is close to our Miami web design office.

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.
If you enjoy Caribbean cuisine, this is a little hidden gem in the middle of Miami-Dade Country. You will find several restaurants that feature authentic Haitian meals. Some of the more popular restaurants are Chef Creole and Tap Tap Restaurant. There you will be able to taste deliciously spicy Creole dishes.
Who knows? OTT might be the best thing that ever happened to you.
