Improving Google Pagespeed Score with Hugo's Academic Theme

When I first migrated my personal site from Wordpress to Hugo one of my goals was to make the site fast. Because Hugo serves my pages as static content, there is no waiting for things like servers looking up content in a database. And while my Google Pagespeed score jumped right away, I wanted to get as close to 100 as I could, especially on mobile. Site speed, and user experience in general, has become more important in ranking in Google, and really has become table stakes.
