I'm about completing my website, and have already written quite some good articles on my particular keywords.
However, after seeing a video on the use of squeeze pages [en.wikipedia.org], I was wondering if Google has any restriction on the use of squeeze pages on a website that intends to run Google Adsense on its main content pages.
My site has a good collection of thoroughly researched articles and from comments about some article directory's TOS not allowing squeeze pages, I'm feeling really set back here.
Any assistance and clearance in this regard will be highly appreciated.

I... don't understand. Squeeze pages lead to sales. Why would you want to distract visitors from your own product by including adsense? I can't think of any Adsense terms that it is against, but it seems like you are working against yourself.

I don't have any product of my own and intend basically marketing through affiliate marketing focusing mostly on clickbank products.
My contention here is this, many sites I have gone through (most competitors in the dating and relationship industry) tend to include Adsense along with other products they are selling on their website.
Really, I would appreciate the most candid opinion on this issue because my design already to some degree has Adsense incorporated into them but I can still manipulate them to remove the Adsense (i.e. if really they would be counter productive to me).
I would appreciate any experienced advice on this issue.

Adsense has policies about general layouts needing to be user friendly, so no squeezing, or don't put Adsense on those specific pages. They also have policies against putting Adsense on sites with no original content, so be careful if your affiliate site only use content provided by merchants.
