Why do you want to do this?
But most of those administrative links including edit comments are enabled or presented to you only if you are logged in. So why bother?
That's what I thought, nowhere are links to the edit pages visible to anyone but me, until...
On the last page of google results, inside the duplicate results section, is this result(and 300 more like it)...
A description for this result is not available because of this site's robots.txt – learn more
...and it got there because the wp-admin section was blocked by the default robots.txt, "fine, can't crawl it so index the url". In fixing the issue I'd prefer google(and anyone not logged in)get a 404 error instead when loading these urls.
Helpful related link, this issue has been brought up before but no solution is posted for the current version of wordpress: [yoast.com...]
Also, the solution suggested involves sending a X-Robots-Tag which is not possible with all hosts.
