    I need some advice,

    I started a SN about 3 years ago since then I have updated the site about a zillion times from bookmarking capabilities to importing your myspace profile blah blah blah blah blah ..

    It gets traffic, a nice amount but I'm lacking sign ups only 15-25 a day...

    What the heck am I doing wrong?

    You need to make your traffic convert into membership....I would recommend offering them something in return for signing up...As to what that might be is down to you !

    I'm on a really tight budget I don't know what i can offer, I'm already offering users backlinks links on their profiles twitter and rss feeds.. I fell like the site is just hitting a wall because I just dont have the money to take it to the next level.

    You could create a few facebook apps with your site url advertised at the footer of the app.

    This would give you a fair boost however, running a SN site is a double edged sword....you need to offer something unique to your members in order to become a recognised SN site and unfortunately, this costs time and money !

    For better SERPs & PR, you could try blog commenting as this will get you backlinks. This would also create traffic for your site and could potentially mean more members.
