    Jobless is unfortunately a keyword that is on the minds of many in 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a spike in jobless claims in the U.S. and many other parts of the world. Below is a look at Google trends which saw a spike from 4 to 100 for the keyword jobless in March. The number has been drifting down over the past few months.

    Thanks for sharing.

    More proof EMDs arent exact science.

    “Jobless” word too much negative Connotation
    but i believe seller got a great deal.

    Would not shock me if re-sell exceeds 1st time

    True, and we don't know why the domain investor did nothing with the name and now sold cheap. They certainly paid a good price, I think the buyer did great.

    Not all EMDs are equal. I think the negative meaning makes it much less valuable.

    My opinion of course.

    I can see it as a financial services business helping those who have become unemployed. A job site, possibly a gig economy based site. A blog, focused on employment, benefits, etc...

    For $2,500 compared to some of the crap I see daily on Namebio I think it was a good buy.

    Unemployed.com sounds better than jobless.com.

    Subjective, I know.

    Jobless.com is a great name and can easily be used for something positive. That's a steal.

    some people, depending on their unemployment check, jobless is already a positive

    I predict that the name would increase the value in the future, when the owners plan to develop seriously rather than only hold for long time

    My simple formula = Build + Giving Free Service + Attract Paid Advertiser

    Then Sell After 1 Years

    I do this for my 5- 10 domain names every years.

    It is reasonable wholesale price.. I know it is wholesale because It was sold at Flippa which means 99% it was sold to a reseller.

    Agree it's cheap enough to flip or to develop.

    I immediately thought of insurances for people in case they might lose their job in the future. Only one customer could already amortize the investment.
