If I recall, I had to upload my key by pasting it into the form on the
web-page, rather than my typical procedure of 'gpg --send-keys ...' with
a specific keyserver listing.  Don't know why the site seems to have
gone down in the meantime.

In particular, a lot of the keyservers participate in a sharing setup,
so that if you put your keys on one, they will show up in others within
a few hours.  I may be showing some bias, but I like:

Web interface at http://keys.fedoraproject.org or
HKP (keyserver protocol) by doing "gpg --keyserver
keys.fedoraproject.org --recv-keys 0x110810E9" (just an example)

You could also put in ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf:
  keyserver hkp://keys.fedoraproject.org
