How do you know if your website has been penalised or not? Do you go way way down in SERP or do you disappear completely?

Thanks.

If some (or all) previously well-ranked keywords drop significantly, that's a penalty. If your urls disappear completely, as in site:example.com returns zero results, then that's a ban.
