gpg --keyserver some.key.server --send some-keyid
for instance, I did this: gpg --keyserver the.earth.li --send
In theory, the keyservers sync with each other, but I have had
some better luck sending my key manually to several keyservers.

Indirectly it does. When you sign a message, the keyid of the
signing key is included in the signature.
As for advertising it, many people put it in their email sig, on
their website, or in their .plan (don't worry if you don't know
what a .plan is :-])
