Getting low performance grade with pingdom

Hi all,

I’m seeing low performance for my own website as well as for with pingdom:

My website:
Performance grade: 70 (D)
Page size: 769.6 KB
Load time: 3.25 s
Requests: 123
Performance grade: 82 (B)
Page size: 4.0 MB
Load time: 377 ms
Requests: 46

Why? Why so many requests and so high load time? What can I do to improve the performance?
I thought all assets get automatically minified.

Assets do not get minified automatically.

Minification in Hugo can be used for JS and CSS assets but you have to call it yourself in the templates. (refer to the Docs)

As for the rest of your comments (that are not related to Hugo), if you serve a lot of external assets each of these requires a request, same for images -that is why lazy loading is recommended for both scripts and images.

I suggest that you look into other channels for recommended ways to serve assets.
