In Stargate: SG1 there are many times Jack O'Neill uses handsignals to communicate with his team members. When I've searched, I've seen a number of different languages using hand signals, but I've never used them or seen much on them before.

Where are the signals the SGC uses from? Is there a place online where I can see what they are?

While SG-1 is Air Force, they probably use the same signals as the Army. Wikipedia has a brief article on the Army's signals, and the actual Army Field Manual 21-60 - Visual Signs is available online.

Then of course there are also less formal signals, like looking at somebody and pointing where you want them to go.
