Cite quotations or paraphrases from the resource you located via the search (e.g., journal article, ebook), not the search itself. The only exception might be if you're reporting on how many items came up in the search, in which case you could simply describe your method e.g., a Google Scholar search of X resulted in 13,000 results.
