    It seems like serpbook didn't update the monthly search field in their website.

    Google has access to a vastly larger data source than serpbook. But that doesn't mean Google's numbers are more accurate: in fact, they provide very skewed numbers to webmasters. The backlinks in Google Webmaster Stools is awfully wrong(or just too outdated to mean anything), just to give one example.
