    The three ways to be absolutely sure:

    - Sudden and dramatic decrease in search engine referrals
    - 0 results for site:domain.com search
    - Other sites ranking for your brand name (something that happened to Digg which was a mistake)
    Everything will be ok in the end

    If it's not ok, it's not the end

    Do you use Google Webmaster Tools? If there was manual action for your site, there will be a notification in GWT in Search traffic -> Manual Actions
    Besides you can check your traffic in Google Analytics, or check where your website ranks with Rank Tracker or some other tool.

    If there's no manual action notification and your traffic/rankings haven't gone down, then you are fine.

    If your website is penalised then Google will sent mail to you in Google Webmaster tool instantly, so keep watching in webmastertool.

    The best way for that you should check out Google analytics and Google webmaster tool because when your site will penalize then Google will send mail regarding these all things.

    Manual penalties are notified via GWT (there was a recent update making responsive actions easier to manage as well). Algorithmic penalties are a lot tougher to pinpoint. I like to use Barracuda's Panguin tool to monitor fluctuations in relation to algo updates. It's not conducive by any means, but definitely a starting point.

    Just because your traffic drops does not mean that you have been penalized. Sometimes google shifts you in between different ranking to see how you CTR, clicks, and impressions change while being in the 1st,2nd,3rd,4th,5th 6-10 positions and then they take all the percentages and come up with new info about your site. I have had time where my traffic dropped for nearly 2 months but then it came right back. Just dont do anything drastic right away. Wait it out and if you traffic is still down after a while then you might of been penalized otherwise continue to create content that is relevant to your site and post it on high quality sites

    Go through Google Webmaster Guidelines. dnt use duplicate content, links and title.
