    The way I do it is, I track my keywords. 2 days ago, few of my keywords went down 50-100 positions and today they are back to where they were.
    If they come back to their original positions (or nearby), you know it was just a dance, if they don't, your site has been penalized.

    Here's a screenshot of what the dance looks like - http://prntscr.com/3kkf5m

    It's possible that it's dancing violently.. OR it got owned.. wait 1-1.5 weeks then you should know what exactly happened.

    From first page to not in top 200 that doesn't sound like dancing to me.

    Your site could have been offline or slow for that one minute when Googlebot visited. Nothing to worry about.

    Copy and paste a few sentences of unique text from your homepage. Google that and see if it returns first. If not, then there's a good chance you've been slapped.

    Great take - this is the method I used with the word Cokfudge
    90 minutes later it was ranking number 1 (obviously - it was the only exact match for the term).
    Knew the site had not had a FULL penalty.

    However - might still have had a partial for specific keywords. Only way to REALLY know is through GWMT.
    Just don't get tempted to ask the self congratulatory ass-hats who moderate the GWM forums - they'll be too busy telling you about single bad link they found or some none compatible HTML on an obscure page and trolling you to be of any real help.

    Just wait more and you will see.
    But don't just sit and wait - make few more big posts on your site - 1000+ words high quality posts that link to several authority and related sites.

    Just wait a week or two. No need to panic too soon. Could be a dance, could be a penalty. I've had sites that disappear from the top 200 for over 48hrs before - and come right back.

    If you're concerned about it being a penalty: Don't build any shitty quality links. Stick to the good stuff for a while.
