Is there any way to be sure that your site has been penalized?

    Is there a definite way to know? I had a site a few months back which was picking up rank and even reached first position and stayed there for a couple of days before losing rank. Maybe that happened cause I stopped SEOing for it or maybe I stopped putting up new content on it or maybe G penalized it. I want to rebuild it but I want to know for sure that the site wasn't penalized cause I don't want to work on it again only to have it all wasted.

    So, is there any way to know?

    Add some content and throw some links at it to get Google to notice the site again. Track the rankings with a tool and if you don't see anything after 2 weeks to a month, move onto another site before being heavily invested in more link building for it.
