Is there a value on domain appearing 4th in google

I have bought a buisness with a website which comes up fourth on Google.
I certainly have no intention of giving it up, but would be interested to know if (in listed forth) this has any monetory value.

If the business is painting ping pong balls pink, and a search on Google for 'pink ping pong balls', it comes 4th is not worth anything.

If the business is selling 'Villas in Spain' and a seach on google for 'villa spain' it comes 4th, then it might have a small value.

The domain name is only one of many factors that produce good rankings, but it is one of the more important ones.

to add to the good points above, when you think '4th' on Google, you should be thinking '4th when a customer searches for something they are looking for' - if you typing your own domain name in.... well, if they knew that already they wouldn't need Google...

The value of a specific domain name is probably marginal - unless you have something spectacular. If you notice that you receive lots of random visitors, you may have a domain that could be useful for sites looking for ANY kind of visitor. But that's unlikely too.
