will eventually be in reputable journals is first circulated by preprint;
often on the Internet. Mathematicians often say if you are waiting
to read journals then you are two-years behind the current research.
Example: "Primes in P" was circulated on the net, gained acceptance,
was improved on repeatedly, all well before its first publication.
You circulate in any media to share what you have. Often you get corrections
and suggestions. Sometimes references that you missed. (Amateurs
often miss the point of references--you must show you know how your
works fits in with the current literature.)
But if instead you mean why do they have "Goldbach Proof" websites.
That is because no one would publish their trash. Audience is the
key--who are you writing to?
