If you use version management software and unformatted text, you can create a gist for your conlang. I did so with the data on rejistanian:

Or get a blog and put the conlang information into static pages.

Someone who stumbled across it, probably searched for something related to it and has a certain interest in language and linguistic, otherwise, he would not be there. Just my 0.02 Kitivalha
