You probably won't be citing a search because a search doesn't usually result in specific information that would be quoted or paraphrased in your text. Instead, cite the resource you found via the Google search. The only exception might be if you're reporting on how many items came up in a Google search, in which case you could simply describe your method e.g., a Google search of X resulted in about 141,000,000 results.
