    Check if your site still appears in the serps by googling "Site:YourSite.Com"

    I agree with acotut , if you also just google the domain name and is not somewhere in the first 2-3 pages , its a SEO problem but penalise problem.

    as acotut said ... just google your domain - if the domain isn't first result it is most of the times penalized if the domain doesn't show up it got deindexed
