I have a domain, let's call it acme.com, where I am currently getting good traffic through paid search. the conversions are not at an acceptable level. I created a few landing pages using Instapage.com. Instapage hosts the landing pages and I want to create a subdomain, landingpage.acme.com that will be the landing page. in my DNS settings create a CNAME that points to instapage and the page will appear as landingpage.acme.com. Will this adversely affect my google paid search results and my organic search results?

All landing page platforms offer to "install" your own domain. I would advise that.

Apart from  SEO and promoted campaign performance  considerations, another consideration is that if the domain is found in violation, you also might find yourself in violation, just because you are hosted on the  domain.  So, have your own domain and be the one responsible that the content complies with the Policy;
