The reason we say that you should not include google images in your credits list is that "google images" isn't a proper source. It's just a search engine; it would be kind of like citing "the library" for a school paper or "pandora" for a songfic. You need to credit the specific site (or, if you're getting the image from flickr or deviantart or something similar, the specific user).
As importantly, though, many of the images you find using a simple google image search are not safe to use even with a proper link and credit, because they're copyrighted. I recommend downloading some of the image packs our artists have put together or using a creative commons search, which should give you pictures you can safely use.
