Check your file permissions. All the files leading up to your
authorized_keys file need to be "go-w".

You might want to google for "sshd config" without the quotes.  In
particular "PasswordAuthentication yes" and "UsePAM yes" are a bad
idea.  I'm surprised that sshd still allows that given the level of
sshd password guessing going on.
It's possible to configure a firewall to give one shot every three minutes
to logging in via ssh.

How long do you think it would take to guess "12345678" as a password
at one try every three seconds? (Or for the real paranoids one try
every three minutes.)
