Use a site like iStockPhoto (http://www.istockphoto.com/) for royalty free images to put on your web site. They run a few dollars an image. Read the agreement, too. There are limits on what you can do and how large the pictures can be on your site.
Pulling images from Google Images is like photocopying art from the Library to put on your site... just because you can see it doesn't mean it's free to use.

As mentioned, if you don't know, then royalty free images would do it.

For free images check out www.freefoto.com (http://www.freefoto.com) Just check out the rules and see if they suite your uses.
Personally I always use iStockphoto to source images.
