Western Wall Prayers
One segulah for shidduchim is davening at the Kotel for 40 consecutive days.
If you can't do it yourself, a frum Jew involved in Torah-learning in Jerusalem can go for you, and daven on your behalf. This can be arranged via www.westernwallprayers.com.
A small donation for this assistance is traditionally requested.
Note: It's especially propitious to recite Psalm 121 before stepping back after the Shemoneh Esrei.

The Gemara (Baba Kama 92a, See also: Rashi on Beraishis; 21:1) states that "one who solicits mercy for his fellow while he himself is in need of the same thing, [will be answered first]".
This applies to the realm of shidduchim as well.
To pray for another in need of a shidduch, you can e-mail the Kol Hamitpalel Organization at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (646) 294-4355
These prayers and other useful info can be found in Rabbi Dolinksy's excellent book, Don't Judge a Book by Its Cover.
Note: The Chida's tefillah is written for men and will need to modified for women's tefillos.
