    I am in the beginning of starting a wp website, and need some guidance. What are the first things you would do? Is a custom logo in the header necessary? Also what does google look for, contact page etc.

    Custom logo in the header aint necessary at all. Google looks for good, fresh, updated content. Whatever niche that you are in, just make sure you update your blog at least 10 times a day with good fresh new content. Articles, pictures, videos, etc.

    Thanks guys, especially blackrats lenghty reply. I understand the information is in these forums and I will try harder to search for what I'm looking for next time. I was just curious what other people do when they start a new blog. I'm sure everyone has a list right off the bat that they follow everytime they start a new blog, and I was interested in hearing them.
