BusinessWeek suggests Google may look to acquire China-based Sina, a rapidly growing media portal.

With its online ad business projected to grow 30% to 35% annually for the next three years, Sina is a “very attractive target” for Google, says Jane Hsieh of investment firm Clay Finlay…Google wants to gain a larger foothold in China, she says, and is “considering Sina as a buyout.”

Sina offers services such as news, entertainment, and other content targeting people of Chinese descent.

  • Perhaps if Google got a bigger presence in China, through short-term censoring as the government mandates, in the long term they can managed to limit the censorship? Wishful thinking?
