good question ... I like https://keys.mailvelope.com/ best, because
it only allows publishing your pub key if you decrypt their reply
with your secret key and as bonus it keeps your collected WoT sigs,
in case you need the classical WoT signatures, or CA sigs, like from
Governikus etc.

Unfortunately gpg.conf, IIRC, allows only defining one key server and
many people still use SKS key servers.
