prompting for passwords even i configured ssh password less authentication

There are two servers :

1. Site
2. Testing

from site server i want to connect testing server with ssh password less authentication.

i generated public and private keys with ssh-keygen -t rsa on site server.

cat id_rsa >> authorized_keys
cat >> authorized_keys

i appended ( public key site server ) to authorized_keys ( testing server ) with below command .

ssh "cat >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys" < ~/.ssh/

am i missing some point in performing procedure for ssh password less authentication ?

because it prompts for passwords agaian and again
