Automatically adding content to your WordPress post, page or widget

On many sites these days, you will find a standard text at the bottom of all WordPress posts, for example the one you can find at the bottom of this post.

There are several ways to add content to your post, without having to do so manually. I will discuss three possible solutions, I would love to hear your preferred method, and why.
