Publishing in obscure academic journals is primarily for enhancing your standing within your scholarly field. Publishing on the web for free is the best way to reach the widest audience. Do both.

"All e-reading platforms should be far more open about the data they provide to publishers. The app stores and mobile content ecosystems that control millions of consumers’ media diets represent vast stores of insight into what people want, when they want it, and how much they’re prepared to pay for it. Without access to at least some of that data, and the ability to interpret it, publishers will be at a natural disadvantage when it comes to creating the product the market wants. And if they don’t get access to it soon, it’s likely that publishing will fall behind in terms of innovation."
