    ValueClick (VCLK) European chief Carl White has resigned, the company discloses. The resignation comes shortly after ValueClick missed Q2 EPS estimates and stated on its earnings call that European sales are weak. CEO James Zarley will now be directly in charge of the company's European ops.

    In spite of complaints from the online ad industry and maybe even its own employees, Microsoft (MSFT) remains committed to keeping Internet Explorer's "Do Not Track" feature a default setting in the browser's next release. Two possible saving graces for Google (GOOG) and other ad network owners: 1) A key Web standards body isn't a fan of the move, and suggests tracking firms are free to "ignore" Microsoft. 2) IE's market share is nosediving.

    More on ValueClick's Q1: The company is guiding for Q2 revenue of $155M-$160M, below a $167.9M consensus. Affiliate marketing revenue is expected to be up only in the mid-single-digits Y/Y, while revenue from owned/operated sites is expected to fall at a high-teens rate. ValueClick appears to be losing share to Google (GOOG) in the display ad space. VCLK -16.5% AH. (PR)

    The IAB estimates U.S. Internet ad revenues rose 23% Y/Y in 1H 2011, a major ramp in growth from the 11% reported for 1H 2010. GOOG and VCLK investors could be pleased to know search and display ad sales both rose 27%, and video sales 42%. But a 2% decline in classified sales might not sit well with NYT and WPO investors.
