    Wordpress generates own links for posts and pages as well default.
    We don’t need to generate links for categories as i never used categories links on website
    Can we stop generating links on wordpress admin default?
    if not, any plugin will do this? Or we have to use robot.txt to stop crawling by bots.
    coz Google craws all categories links and showing as site links on serps (I don’t want bots to crawl my categories link)

    If you use the All in One SEO Plugin you can disable the indexing of category and archive pages. Make sure the checkbox for "Use noindex for Categories" is ticked.

    Which SEO plugin are you using for your website? If you are adding new category page then the URL will be generated itself and you don't want to index those pages then disable the indexing for category pages or use the robots.txt file.

    You are welcome, there is no fixed time, sometimes it will take more than a week.
