So my question is did these guys had some deal already with each other for these or it's completely normal for anyone to use Images like that.

I use Morguefile as a source when I can find something good. Those images can be displayed without attribution back to the original creator.
The other possibility is where the images have been published with a Creative Commons license. Here you must give a link to the original source. I find PhotoPin a good source for such images.

I assume that any website with a lot of traffic / readers, especially readers more likely to be in the business of creating web content, may be able to strike a similar deal. Best to contact the stock image people.
If you are a bot, then bzzzzz tt tt lkld ping!

I write for one of the mentioned sites. Our rules for citing images are very strict. Out of respect for photographers, it is the better choice to cite them. We're instructed to cite images we find in Google search or free photo sites.
Btw, what is the thing on the nose of your photo?

Note: some sites such as Flickr allow those uploading images to apply various restrictions, i.e. free to use on personal sites but NOT free to use on commercial sites, free to use anywhere, etc., some stock sites have similar categories.
Note: some minor stock sites are generated by scraped images...using images from such a site may have consequences.
Simply appropriately citing an image does NOT equate to permission to use.

It is likely that just about every image ever made is somewhere on google image search now. Very few can be reused legally. Otherwise this would be the ultimate stock photo search.

I should think that this is only when searching for images using the creative commons filter in search?
Yes. I found that many images I chose led to Flicker sites and the owner would designate what they would share and their rules for using them.
