How to Know if site Penalized?
I have one blog on wordpress used for photoblogging. I dint updated since 3 to 4months so when today i tried to search on Google search i dint find my site. Ok I never optimized my site till i get enough post to optimize to rank well. But the strange part is even after typing url of my site Google is showing my site but no description or any other information. Is my site got penalized? or there is any other issue that i dont know?

The easiest way to know whether the site is penalized or no is by finding :
info:www.your site url.com

It sounds like you've been affected by the Google Panda Update.
In order to recover you'll need to add more high quality content to your site as well as continue to build high quality backlinks to your site.
You've made a good point about your anchor text. Try to vary your anchor text and use "click here" or "www.yoursite.com" as well as your keywords.
It might take some time but as long as you continue to provide value to your site visitors by providing high quality content and relevant information, Google will finally see that you have changed your ways and will improve your SERPs over time.

If suddenly your keyword ranking fell down or becomes invisible from its current ranking then it simply means your website is penalized. But sometimes it happens that a website ranking comes back after 1 or 2 days then it is called as search engine updation or other reason but not penalization.

You can send a request to google through google webmasters and find out if your site has been penalized It might take a couple weeks though google is slow.

Can you provide me your blog address? I would like to do a research on your website. Try “cache:your website URL” this code Google search.

As my opinion title and keywords length create a problem here or crow rate of your blog also a fact for increase or decrease search engine ranking.
