    I'm just wondering if it's bad for SEO. Say you have 60 posts on your site, and every post you want an image. Is it bad for your SEO if when you added an image to that post in Wordpress you just Google Image Searched and grabbed the URL, instead of saving the image and uploading the image to your Wordpress?

    Well, It's little bad for SEO.
    if you do upload images on your hosting then your site will look professional.
    also you can upload imanges by your WP panel.

    If they changed the file name, moved the image, or deleted it you wouldn't have any image on your site. It's not that hard to download the images man..
