    People tend to have the attention spans of a fly these days,
    especially online, unless you have something very compelling which
    holds their attention span. You might want to somehow incentivise
    your profile completion process, but if your completion rate is so
    undesirable other important factors could be at play. Very hard to
    tell really without seeing and evaluating and experiencing the actual site
    in full.

    Good luck,
    CJ

    Look at how they've found your site in Analytics... could they be a bot like Xrumer or whatever trying to post crappy profile links?

    One of my sites has almost 9,000 sign ups, we go through and delete the spam accounts so they are legit. For the most part, to break down the demographics I'd say :

    ------------------------------------
    65% Fill out the profile in some way, either by adding an avatar/setting their bio.
    35% Just create an account and never come back
    ------------------------------------
    Of the 65% That join and fill out the profiles -> 80% Will visit our video chat once and never come back, 15% will be off and on and 5% mostly stick to talking to people outside the chats via pm/message boards.

    Maybe at any given time 5% will be regulars for some period of time (until they piss off the moderators)

    When we first started a few years ago, our bounce rate was pretty low. Average time spent on the site was high because people literally lived on it. My suggestion is create multiple avenues for people to interact with.

    Get them on a mailing list... send them regular updates?

    That's what always works best for me. I love having the constant ability to get into their phones, or computers, to deliver a personal message.

    you think i didnt,,,i always send them messages,,,i am really tired ,,if my site sucks ,,,i'd not bother myself to try and understand why people dont sign up or use the site if they sign up ,,,,my site collects all social & music accounts in one profile ,,,from other sites such : Music sites << reverbnation,soundcloud,mixcloud,youtube,datpiff,,,beside that ,,,you can also include and import your social network activities like facebook fan page and twitter feeds,,linked in ,,all these ,,my keywords relevancy are higher according to a lot of sites,,i really dont know what to do anymore,,,other sites that may offer half of my site features are having premium memberships ,,,so depressed ,,i offer free options and features ,,,but it seems like none can care at all ,,,,
    according to you ,,,isnt this enough of features to let people excited to join ,,,
    without to mention that you can sign up using more than 240 social networks as hotmail,yahoo,google,,,wordpress,,aol,,,,facebook,,,twitter,,,,

    My only suggestion is to find a artist to promote it in a song ad whatever.
