How to Check Your Site If It's Under A Penalty by Google

The best technique which is used by the SEOs to check either your site is indexed or not with the site: command.
If the site is showing in Google Search, then it's indexed. Check the cache version also, so it ensures it's indexed. It's the snapshot of the site like Way Back Machine, so it also shows when the site was crawled by Google Bot.
So how you will check either the site is under a penalty? The best is that check all the posts and pages the site have via software like Screaming Frog or any web version.
You can also count via the same command site:example.com
Then check how many posts Google has indexed. If the total posts are 100, but the pages are showing only 1 to 2, then it's 99% in a penalty.
Now, it's time to check either it's penalized by Panda due to the weak content or due to Penguin due to Penguin. If Panda, improve content, avoid keyword stuffing, write quality content.
If Penguin then go to Ahrefs, remove all the toxic links. You can make use of Majestic also that helps in showing the clear anchor text distribution.
